Yay! Your art has arrived!
If you are taking your print to a framer, they will most likely take care of these steps for you. If you are framing yourself then no worries! Follow these easy steps to flatten prints yourself.
Use a razor or knife to open tube and take out your print.
Peel the tape off the rolled up print. Be sure not to squeeze the print too hard as you may bend it. Do not use a knife.
Lay the print face down on the brown paper on a flat surface. Allow the paper the expand by itself for a few hours. It is made of natural material and will flatten slightly by itself.
Carefully flatten your print with your hands starting on one end and place clean heavy flat items like books on top. Repeat that step on the other end. * Remember to keep the artwork face down on the brown paper.
Sit back and relax. Prints will be flat in about 24 hrs.
That’s it! Your print should be flattened and ready for framing.
